The Summer 2018 issue of Coastwatch magazine is now available, including highlights from a new book and new research projects funded by North Carolina Sea Grant. Here is a quick guide:
Nags Head is planning for the future and the uncertainty that comes with living at the coast.
An excerpt from the new Seacoast Plants of the Carolinas explores how native plants adapt and thrive in the challenging coastal environments.
Challenges of living in a changing coastal environment are highlighted in RISING, a traveling multimedia exhibit.
With North Carolina Sea Grant funding, researchers from five universities will tackle issues including hurricane recovery, oyster reefs and aquaculture, coastal communities, saltmarsh conservation and science literacy.
Also, three new partnerships, funded by the N.C. Community Collaborative Research Grant Program, consider flood risks and emerging contaminants, as well as new tourism opportunities that capitalize on dark skies.
After a six-year absence, leatherback sea turtles have again graced North Carolina beaches.
Mariner’s Menu features summer seafood favorites, including grilled scallop kabobs and Carolina shrimp boils, as well as foods with a twist, like snapper with tropical fruit salsa and seafood-stuffed avocado.
